A security guard with the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office said he saw what he suspected was child porn on the computer screen that Elric Brock was sitting in front of Tuesday afternoon. The guard called police.

Court documents showed that at first Brock denied the guard’s claim, but after more questioning, police said he admitted to not only looking at child porn but also saving images to his phone.

Brock was charged with encouraging child sexual abuse in the first and second degrees.

He’s due in court on August 14 and is not allowed to go into a library, use a computer or be around children until that date.
